A Farewell Celebration for the Redwood Hostel

As the Redwood Hostel closes its doors indefinitely, we gather with community members, colleagues, hostel guests, and staff past and present, to celebrate the rich and varied history of this unique place.

An important tribal site, a pioneer homestead, and for the past 22 years, a hostel welcoming travelers from around the world — this is a place that has meant so much to so many. Please join us as we say farewell.

Candlelight Walk Through the Ancient Forest

Light up a sliver of the ancient sky with a candlelight walk through the redwood groves of Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park.

This annual gathering begins with hor d' oeuvres from local restaurants served at the Prairie Creek Visitor Center. Then, head out into the darkened night and witness the wide expanse of stillness that grows in an old-growth forest.

The path leads from the Visitor Center to the Campfire Amphitheatre, where you'll settle in beside a roaring campfire to hear the North Coast Storytellers entertain with tales for all ages, including local lore.

The program concludes with a return to the Visitor Center for mulled cider and cupcakes.

Amnesty International Write-A-Thon

On December 10-12, everyone is welcome to join us at the Redwood National Park Hostel in Klamath for an Amnesty International human rights write-a-thon!

Amnesty International will provide case studies of prisoners of conscience -- humans across the world who are being persecuted for their beliefs -- and we'll write longhand letters to national governments in support of fair trials, impartial investigations, and humane treatment of their citizens. This nonpartisan global annual event has helped release prisoners of conscience across the globe.

The hostel will provide paper, pens, envelopes, stamps, case studies, and sample letters that can be copied verbatim or used as inspiration for writing your own letter in support of human rights.
